This is a list of games that have (1) received a lot of praise, and (2) have been or are currently out of print. The purpose of the list is to discuss if the praise they received during their time out of print, was deserving, or just overhype because it was out of print.

I'm going to add a poll to each one so everyone can have an objective say. But I encourage you to add your comments to each one.

Stay classy, BGG.

The inspiration for this list. I so looked forward to this game when it was OOP. Then it finally got a reprint, and needless to say, I was disappointed.

A victim of OCOOP, IMO.

It's not a horrible game. But when it was OOP, it sure did get a lot of comments like, "This is the greatest game ever! Oh, and I have a copy!" etc. etc.

Because it's a good game, it deserved a reprint, but it was slightly victimized by OCOOP.

I've never played Dune proper. But I have played Rex: The Final Days of an Empires. Now, I know they're not the same. And I know I'd like Dune more. But are we sure it's not just a nostalgia thing going on here? Are there really no readily-available games that could fill this void?

Is this a case of timeless, masterpiece design? Or just another case of OCOOP?

Add in its partner: Advanced Civilization.

Most owners of this game will claim that no other civilization game has ever come close to doing what this one did.

I don't know. I've never played it. I'm just asking the question.

Is it OCOOP? If a reprint happened, would it sell like crazy? Get played like crazy? Climb to the top of the ranking? Be touted by civ lovers as the the king of civs?

Just to show you that I'm fair and unbiased, here's one that I believe deserves the hype. Deserving of a component upgrade? Definitely. But how I wish it was readily available for everyone to enjoy the way I do.

Great game. Deserving of the hype it gets, IMO. But let the people speak!:

This was so rare and highly prices while it was OOP, I expected the reprint to be a major success. Things have been pretty quiet since its release. And I've seen just as many disappointed reviews as I have enthusiastic ones.

It appears it will be getting a reprint soon. So we'll probably see prices drop in the marketplace and auctions.

Do you feel the prices got a little too high during its OOP time?
